Yikes, I've been out'ed :-)

Parts of mod_mem_cache, especially the reference counting and fd cache 
stuff I wrote, are exceptionally elegant ;-).  But seriously, 
mod_mem_cache was not a bad first effort, but it is ready for a 
rewrite.  I was never happy dealing with bucket brigades in the cache, a 
real pita, so option #3 looks interesting. Probably possible to use 
option #3 and extend it as a special case for caching fds.
